Anyway, you’re not at this point yet but I wanted to offer the comfort that you are not destined to take every holiday alone for the rest of your life.
Most retreats have a purpose – fitness, relaxation, yoga etc which gives a plan to the week that helps visitors to feel less lonely.
This is good because most people won’t approach someone obviously reading a book. But if it is just headphones they won’t realise until they approach you that you have them in.
The great thing about doing a blog is that it gives you a sense of purpose when you are travelling on your own.
Americans are much more likely to chat away to someone on their own and much more likely to keep a conversation going.
